User Agreement Face App

Filed under: Allgemein — @ 05:52

Although it claims that it only loads photos that users have specially selected for editing. Security tests also found no evidence that the app charges the entire role of a user`s camera. It also indicates that the vast majority of FaceApp users do not log in – indicating that, in most cases, it is unable to link photos to identities. We don`t know exactly how many people use the app, let alone how many paying subscribers FaceApp accounts. Goncharov said that about 1% of users pay for premium subscribers. Between them, they generate more than 99% of FaceApp`s revenue, the rest comes from hosting Google ads. Potentially disturbing for faceApp users – and anyone who was active before: when FaceApp users log in, they agree, in accordance with the terms of use, to let FaceApp/Wireless use their face for any purpose they want. Users also give access to the application to siri and search functions. 4. All FaceApp features are available without a connection and you can only connect to the configuration screen. As a result, 99% of users do not sign up.

Therefore, we do not have access to data that could identify a person. FaceApp, the mobile photo processing app that has (yet) gone viral, this time for its ability to transform user photos (mainly selfies) to make them younger or older than their actual age, has some very in terms of terms of usage conditions. The company also said it only uploaded photos, users selected for editing and not additional images. Subsequently, the company issued a statement to this effect, stating that the processing is mainly done in the cloud, with most of the photos deleted after 48 hours. He added that users could demand that their data be erased via the „report errors“ feature in the app. In mid-July, the app reported a delay in deleting the data. I can see why FaceApp chooses to upload the user`s photo to its server and process it on its server: from a professional point of view, hiding the photo processing code on their server makes it difficult for potential competitors to copy it. It also makes hacking more difficult It found that none of these mass downloads were going on – FaceApp took only the specific photos that users decided to transmit. It is unlikely that FaceApp can actually use the user`s content maliciously and this kind of terms has been seen in other social media applications, but for those who take their privacy seriously and do not want to leave a digital footprint, these terms should be a reason to stay away from faceApp (and other similar applications).
